Beautiful Space

Been here a few times over the past year and it's a brilliant vegan space. Very cosy and gorgeously decorated inside.

There's always a nice variety of drinks both hot and cold and bites to eat too. I've even bought soap from there a few times.

I'm yet to stop and sit inside for my meal/drink as I'm usually on-the-go but every time I've been in there's plenty of other customers which is nice to see. Really lovely people running the cafe too. Couldn't recommend enough:)

Tasty food, child friendly atmosphere

I love this place! The moment you step in you’re met with a colourful and cosy café. As I got there rather late for lunch (around 13:45), they had run out of several meal options. A bit sad, but the corn fritters with scrambled tofu and Smokey beans was really good. I also had a lemon bun, delicious! There’s a separate room where people with small children can eat and let the kids play with the toys there. A great feature!

Pros: Nice and affordable options, Friendly staff, Child friendly

Cons: Can run out of some food

Loved it

Really delicious and lovely atmosphere. I had what was basically a fancy beans on toast, sooo full of flavour and their homemade sourdough was divine. There was a homemade vegan feta cheese on top which was a bit different and really tasty (wish I had the recipe!). Both of my non-vegan friends really enjoyed their dishes too. I had a millionaires shortbread for dessert which was delicious and somehow also seemed healthy! Not sure how they managed that! The cafe is definitely kid-friendly and even has a gate across a separate room so children can roam about which I thought was a really nice touch. Love the general ethos of the place and it feels very comfortable.

Pros: Great options for both sweet and savoury , Child-friendly , Friendly atmosphere

Amazing place

Wonderful lunch location and extremely welcoming. I had the beetroot falafel. For those who only ever have soy milk in their tea, try the oat and pea blend they have! It’s really good!

Pros: Food , People, Decor

Lovely cosy place, friendly staff and the food is fantastic and reasonably priced

Jen the chef does magic with her locally sourced fresh ingredients and makes some fantastic dishes with her creative combinations. My fav is the mushrooms on homemade sourdough toast and the coffee and pistachio cake. The place is cosy and funky and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Pros: Excellent food, Good friendly vibes, Good coffee

THE best vegan food I've had! Healthy, ethical, delicious

This place is amazing. Great vibrant atmosphere and environment. Jen the chef is a unique genius crafting deliciously rustic food in-house.

There's nowhere quite like it!

Old school vegan café

My lovely wife and I visited Hullabaloo for a pre-match lunch before heading off to the football at nearby Portman Road. It's a bit of an old school vegan place with a slightly rundown feel and distinctly hippy vipe.

The menu is fairly limited but offers a few tempting options. I had a falafel salad while my wife had a Christmassy toastie filled with their homemade nutroast. Both were pretty good but nothing special. A pretty average experience.

Pros: 100% vegan

Cons: Fairly limited menu, Decor needs revamping

Lovely Burger!

We went in for some lunch with our children. There was not a great deal on the menu to chose from, I had the cauliflower burger, my husband had the mushroom on toast, my son the tomato soup and daughter the waffle.

I loved the burger with chickpeas and scrambled tofu. My hubby was less impressed with his mushrooms on toast. My son loved his soup and ate it all up and my daughter ate up the waffle but said she was not completely sold on it.

Coffee came out in cute mugs etc. Would definitely go again.

Nice little place, great ambience

The choices for lunch were limited though there were several desserts, but there were two brunch options. One of the brunches (with tofu scramble) was rather bland, unfortunately. The other, with oyster mushrooms and spinach and tarragon cream was apparently very nice.
The chocolate cherry dessert was good as was the raspberry Bakewell tart. The coffee pistachio cake was a little lacking in flavour.
We would go back again.

Pros: Cozy, relaxed atmosphere, Friendly staff, Lots of dessert choices

Cons: Not much choice for lunch

cutesy vegan cafe!

adorable vegan cafe with wonderful baked good items! i had a vegan waffle, which was somewhat disappointing, but the coconut cream it was served with was delish!! i would definitely recommend the more savoury items and baked goods, as we enjoyed those the most. additionally, the environment and staff were both absolutely lovely!!

Nice place

I visited with a friend. We both had waffles and homemade lemonade. We visited late in the day so there was a reduced menu available but what we had was very nice and the service was friendly. I will definitely visit again for brunch/lunch when there’s a bit more choice.

Excellent food well worth the wait - Service Haphazard

We had the mushroom potato cakes with scrambled tofu and avocado and a refreshing glass of homemade lemonade. Everything was delicious and good value, and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The only downside was the extremely long wait to get served once the orders had been placed. Some in our group had to ask again for forgotten drinks. It was reasonably busy so that might have caused the slow service. I would definitely go again but perhaps at a quieter time. Edit: Best you pay by cash as their card payment system doesn't issue printed receipts (OK save the trees etc) except the day after we discover they have charged us an extra £5 for no reason!!! We didn't authorise it. Update: I did receive an apology and the £5 back but would use cash only in future.

Amazing little cafe

I absolutely loved my visit here! The staff are all so friendly and the menu is great and really easy to understand. I will come back again as soon as possible to try some dishes! The food and drinks are really reasonably priced too.
